    Does anyone have one of these, I was looking to get one refurbished from Apple for way less then the new uMBP 15" 2.8 with the new 7 hour battery.

    I just figured it would be a performance boost to my uMB and that I am not emptying my bank account to buy one.

    How do you like it, are there pros or cons, I would imagine it is about the same as my uMB 2.4/4/320 however I know it has the discrete graphics on top of the 9400M

    I purposely went for this machine instead of the new ones because i wanted the expresscard slot and battery removable option and it is a fine machine that performs well. No complaints whatsoever

    How do you compare it to the early 2009 uMB with a 2.4/4/320

    Is this 15 uMBP that much better, I know the screen is bigger and resolution higher, and the dual GPU's but would you say it is that much better then a uMB from early 2009

    The gap isn't big at all but there is a gap...between 20-35%. The screen on those macbook are significantly inferior though.
